Twas the day before Thanksgiving, and all through the city

Look of the Day: the Artwork of Andy Warhol

By |March 30th, 2012|

by Ally Evander, Allied Member, ASID

For a little Friday fun, I thought I would present some artwork by Andy Warhol. His art became an important part of mainstream American culture in the 1960s and has remained popular ever since as a different kind of artwork.  His work represents fun, energy, irreverance, craziness, rebellion and so much more.
